The work includes the installation of new locker rooms and improving gate access to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act at the 43-year-old stadium. In November, some four years after a facility assessment said the Liberty Bowl was nearing obsolescence, the Memphis City Council appropriated general obligation bonds totaling $1,861,300 for construction of new locker rooms and $125,000 for furniture, fixtures and equipment.
